Hero or villain? Trump's court pick is in for a fight

President Donald Trump talks with Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Kavanaugh’s family after nominating him to the Supreme Court

"John's not going to give up and he's not going to resign, and he's said wonderful, brilliant things about Judge Kavanaugh", former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer told KTAR News 92.3 FM's Mac and Gaydos. "He's keeping his cards close to his chest about how he'll vote on a Supreme Court pick, issuing the most bland statement possible on Kavanaugh: ".

But: Heitkamp remained notably noncommittal after Trump picked Kavanaugh.

She didn't immediately respond to a follow-up e-mail asking whether she ever interacted at Harvard with Kavanaugh, who worked previously in the George W. Bush administration and also for independent counsel Ken Starr during the Bill Clinton investigation.

Regarding Kavanaugh being poorer than the others, many of whom had considerable earnings during years of non-government legal work, Shah said, "He's devoted his life to public service".

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has vowed to oppose Kavanaugh with every means at his disposal. Democratic senators such as Elizabeth Warren joined Monday evening's protests.

Targalski seemed to take no notice until the cat's tail blocked his vision. And honestly, Lisio also deserves a treat for being a very good boy.

There's a record number of women raising their hands for public office in recent months, putting a focus on female empowerment in an era of #MeToo.

"In selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy left by Justice Kennedy, President Trump has chosen a nominee with impeccable credentials and a strong record of upholding the Constitution", McCain said. The value of residences is not subject to disclosure, and Shah added that Kavanaugh has a government retirement account worth almost half a million dollars that also was not required to be disclosed.

But Democrats say nothing short of Roe v. Wade is on the line and have cast Kavanaugh as a far-right judge who threatens women's reproductive rights. And I am afraid that's the future when it comes to confirming judges. "Don't tell me this battle is already lost - I don't believe that".

Trump spoke during the television announcement of the nomination from the White House East Room on Monday.

Kavanaugh disappointed social conservatives in a 2017 case involving a pregnant teenage immigrant in federal custody who wanted an abortion.

Iranian authorities are also now surveilling "Instagram celebrities" who may be facing arrest, according to the New York Times. Authorities in Iran arrested four girls and women last week for posting videos of themselves dancing on Instagram .

Murkowski supports abortion rights, and it was a key reason she voted against Trump's Obamacare repeal last summer. Democrats say they will fight to prevent the high court from becoming too conservative.

The focus is on GOP Sens.

Some conservative critics faulted Kavanaugh for not taking up the merits of the dispute and declaring the ACA unconstitutional.

Kavanaugh's writings already have been cited in Supreme Court rulings, as in a 2013 decision preventing certain USA lawsuits against foreign corporations alleged to be responsible for human-rights abuses overseas and a 2015 decision stopping the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating mercury emissions from coal-fired plants without taking account of costs. That opinion is not shocking, it's held by many legal experts, Republican and Democrat, alike. The president has faced allegations of sexual harassment and remains under investigation for obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation election meddling investigation.

"He's taken a position that the president should not be open to any civil or criminal case while he's the president", Kauffman explains. The two other branches are represented by the presidency and Congress.
